The Safe Texting Campaign's mission is to reduce/stop distracted driving through education and technology. Sons, daughters, sisters, brothers, mothers, fathers – so many have been lost, injured or forever devastated by accidents resulting from texting and cell phone use while driving. Together we can stop this worldwide distracted driving crisis and stop it today!
Research shows that teen drivers, ages 16-19, are easily distracted and take more unnecessary risks than mature experienced drivers. Teenage overconfidence encourages reckless activities including speeding, lane cross-overs, red light running and tailgating when driving solo or with their peers. This means teenage drivers are dangerous enough without adding a cell phone and texting into the equation. Teens are four times more likely to get into a car accident while talking or texting. Our application will helps to reduce the behavior through education and technology, and texting while driving.
The problem goes beyond teens
The SafeTexting Campaign hands out distracted driving literature at community events. We recently participated in the Ocoee FL, Founders Day Festival. I handed literature to a young man, he had his wife and two children with him. We talked about Safe Texting, "I'm sure you don't text and drive, but I am sure you know someone who dose..." After they walked away, his son (about age 10) ran back to me and said "Thanks for giving that to my dad, he really needs to know it's bad to text and drive".
The founders of the SafeTexting Campaign are parents who are alarmed with the impact cell phone usage while driving is having on our society. We're concerned about distracted driving, safety, security and preserving parental rights.
No parent should outlive their child or receive a devastating phone call over something as pointless as an irresponsible text message. SafeTexting Campaign reduces texting and driving which gives a us peace of mind and allows teenagers to safely continue enjoying their growing independence. We must set the standard for safe positive behavior and we must stop texting and driving. Demands on our time can result in a challenging balance, but safety must never be sacrificed. Stop the madness, get the application for your phone. Set an example and to show others that safety is always a high priority, do not text and drive
